in the telegram that after the invasion and the overflow of the taliban in afghanistan, my sense was and my sense with hindsight i would say was that the focus heads which very quickly to iraq and indeed i was ambassador in iraq from 2005 to 2006 during the period when we had taken our eye off the ball in afghanistan and it was clear to me that the governments focus, the public focus was on iraq and having arrived in afghanistan in 2010, it struck me there was a period were some of the things we were doing in 2010 and 2009 were things that might've been done earlier, so that is what i think. we did begin cooling up the security forces in afghanistan early enough in my view and perhaps we hadn't achieved as much as we should have done. i think the focus on iraq during that period of 2003 to 2007. >> when did you realize -- [inaudible] >> it was in hindsight. i think by the time i got there at the focus has switched back to afghanistan. i think some of the decisions that already been made. the surge in troops for instance, the u.s. surgeon troops and the additional troops that were sent to helmand,
